Evans Cycles

Unit 1 Retail Park, North Rd, Preston PR1 1NQ, UK – 01772 542300

I love this place! Knowledgeable, helpful, patient and friendly staff, good quality components. Got to know them when I went through a spate of multiple punctures near UCLan. They happened to be the closest shop I could drag my bike to! I'm so glad!! I prefer to be left alone when browsing as well, (I do often get asked, but not intrusively) so this store suits me down to the ground. You can always ask for help! They now advertise "Fix It" courses on the website. Given my experience at the end, I would highly recommend! When I did need a new bike I needed something very specific, and I tried going to them first. However for what I needed their usually fantastic knowledge didn't quite stretch that far. I ended up going to Paul Hewitt Cycles for a touring bike built to my measurements. Given how specific my needs were I am still giving 5 stars. Evans is like a "John Lewis" of bikes. If you need a good "suit" they do very well for almost every occasion, but if you need something a little out the ordinary then you need a "Tailor". So I ended up completely rebuilding my ailing bike bit by bit and would take it in to get a suitable part. I'd ask (lots of) questions and so a couple of the mechanic staff got to know me quite well! They did always advise that I needed a new bike really, which I did but didn't have the budget for at the time. Plus I did have a lot of fun and learnt a ton from what I did to my "old faithful". Parts were usually cheaper on the net, but the advice and quality assurance is worth it.

Good service on click and collect, also ordered in store, received good advice on purpose and best price to collect within in a couple of days on a set of tyres.

Bounce MTB Suspension and Bicycle Servicing

G4, Preston Technology Centre, Marsh Ln, Preston PR1 8UQ, UK – 01772 437180

Excellent Service and Work! After using lots of companies for fork and dropper servicing I am very glad to have found Bounce. The entire experience from beginning to end was excellent, the work conducted to a very high standard, followed by a report on the work completed and a speedy return all at a reasonable cost. Communication of the whole process was very good and could not be faulted. I would certainly recommend Bounce MTB Suspension Servicing to anyone.

Simply can't recommend Bounce enough. Just got my trusty steed back from Frank and the team following a full drivetrain swap out and new set of forks. The bikes put together better now than when i first bought it, running super smooth. Far from feeling like 'another service' they give the job the proper attention it deserves. The fact i drive 1.5 hours, each way for the service should tell you something. Bike service is a solid 5/5.

Leisure Lakes Bikes Preston Hub

Very friendly and knowledgeable staff, the bike hub which is next to the shop is a fantastic idea. Secure storage for your bike in an otherwise risky area.

Cycle Hire

Sunshine Events UK

Fun Towers, 5 Nile Close, Nelson Court Business Park, Preston, Preston Docklands PR2 2XU, UK – 01772 736200

Time and again Sunshine Events can be relied upon to deliver an exceptional service. The quality of the events equipment is outstanding and always creates a real buzz in the studio when it arrives. The whole team are super lovely to chat to and are able to make miracles happen at short notice! Highly recommended!

The whole Sunshine Events team exude fun in everything they say and do. Having made contact just 48 hours before our event (on the last Friday before Christmas), the team went above and beyond to deliver exactly what we wanted and more, despite the short notice. Our team had fantastic fun on the rodeo sheep and giant operation. I must also make a special mention for Dave, who not only delivered the equipment and packed up after the event leaving everything tidy, but acted as our rodeo sheep operator, tailoring the experience perfectly depending on who was on the sheep at the time - whether that was a 12 year old child or a 60+ year old lady - or somewhere in between. Spot on. Thank you.
